I don’t believe there’s any poison oak in the photos. The green leaves are coast live oak (Q. agrifolia), I think—the leaves are simple and toothed, not compound with three leaflets as in poison oak. Thanks for the tip, though; I’m sure it’ll be useful in the future!

the “oak” shown appears to be poison oak. If so, then you may want to stock-up on fresh Trametes versicolor. A sliced section of Trametes versicolor (and other fungi as well) will detoxify poison oak on contact. FYI.
